USEPA Construction & Demolition Materials Markets Webinar to be Held July 31st
Construction and demolition material comprise a significant portion of the national waste stream, and reuse and recycling of this material can generate economic opportunity when recovered and returned to the local economy. A better understanding of materials available regionally and locally may help businesses create better long-term plans and goals for utilizing this material. Local governments and the communities they serve can also benefit from this information when there is a growing interest in enacting policies that prioritize material reuse and recycling over landfilling.
Join the webinar on July 31st at 1 pm Eastern Time to better understand the available construction and demolition materials recycling and reuse end use markets, methodologies and strategies for planning and implementing deconstruction and building material reuse programs, and the exciting work taking place in St. Louis.
